Welcome to SNX DLX, your weekly roundup of the best sneakers on the internet. This week, rather than getting a bunch of new models, we’re getting a handful of restocks of highly sought-after colorways, from zebra-striped Yeezys to the return of the Mocha Toe question. While we’re always on the lookout for the latest and greatest shoes, we’ll be stocking up on colorways any day of the week – these are the all-time favorite sneakers we’re talking about here!
As for the silhouettes themselves, we have a few of the usual suspects (Dunks and Jordans, what a surprise) along with a few newcomers like Adidas’ Tour 360 silhouette (which we’ve never covered) and the Virgil Abloh’s first posthumous Off – White Nike drop. Let’s dive into this week’s top nine sneaker drops.
Nike WMNS Dunk High FLS
Nike has released many new Dunk colorways for women this year, but this week’s FLS colorway is one of the best. White hammered leather upper with light gray matte leather overlays, lace swoosh jewel and metallic teal wraparound swoosh.
Nike says the design is “influenced by the confluence of the digital and physical worlds”, okay, of course Nike, whatever you say. Looks like a regular high end Dunk to us in a dope colorway. You don’t really need to do more than that.
The Women’s Dunk High FLS is available now for a retail price of $120. Pick up a pair through the Nike SNKRS app.
Yeezy QNTM Mono Carbon
Fans of Yeezy’s rock-forming-as-footwear silhouette, QNTM, are treated to an all-new colorway of the sneaker. Like most QNTMs, the colorway is kept understated with a simple monochromatic Gray upper with suede overlays atop a Milky White midsole.
It’s a fitting colorway for this particular silhouette, and while we like the recent changes the brand has made to their overall color scheme, we’re happy to see the brand sticking to their minimalist aesthetic for this one. .
The Yeezy QNTM Mono Carbon is set to release on April 7 for a retail price of $260. Pick up a pair through the Adidas Confirmed app or Yeezy Supply.
Adidas Tour360 22 x Waffle House Limited Edition Golf Shoes
Adidas collaborating with Midwestern and Southern breakfast chain restaurant Waffle House isn’t on our list of collaborators for the Three Stripes brand, but they’re actually some hell of a dope.
If you’re unfamiliar with the world of golf, Georgia is a pretty big fixture on the scene as it’s the venue for The Masters – which begins this month and marks the start of the golf season. To celebrate the state that is home to the Masters, Adidas tapped into a familiar Georgian icon to serve as inspiration for a new Tour 360 ’22 colorway.
The sneaker features a batter-inspired colorway atop a premium full-grain leather upper, three-stripe waffle pattern, and translucent outsole with maple syrup-inspired graphics beneath a SPIKEMORE traction system. The design is completed with Waffle House branding to the heel in the chain’s familiar typography.

Nike WMNS Dunk High Vintage Black
What did we say about Nike and Dunk drops for women? We get a constant flow, you like to see it. This vintage-inspired pair is less flashy than the FLS, but it’s that classic black and white leather look.
Not inspired? Sure, but not liking a black and white Dunk High is like hating a white Stan Smith with a green heel tab, so if you don’t like those things, it’s safe to say you just have bad taste.
The Nike Dunk High Vintage Black is set to release on April 7th for a retail price of $125. Pick up a pair through the Nike SNKRS app.
So consider me sold! The Jordan Horizon applies a distressed look to the TPU cage and features a Black midsole with a White Cement Sharktooth and a handsome Jade leather upper.

Off-White Nike Blazer Low White and University Red/Black and Electro Green
It’s a bittersweet announcement, but this week brings Nike’s first Off-White release since the untimely death of Virgil Abloh, the Off-White Blazer Low. True to Abloh’s form, the Off-White Blazer Low transforms one of Nike’s most popular and vintage silhouettes into something hyper modern.
The design features several changes from the traditional Blazer silhouette, including accentuated lace, a swoosh tongue, the same translucent perforated windows of the Off-White Jordan 6, and the most radical departure, a protruding TPU heel inspired by the Blazer. ‘Air Terra Humara from Nike.
It doesn’t look like a Blazer anymore, and while that frankly pales in comparison to the current Blazer silhouette, which is as untouchable as the Jordan 1, it’s really sad that we don’t have Abloh to push the boundaries of the bold and unique. way he was always adept at doing.
The sneaker comes in two colorways, White and University Red, or Black and Electron Green.
The Off-White Nike Blazer Low White and University Red/Black and Electro Green are set to drop on April 8th for a retail price of $140. Pick up a pair through the Nike SNKRS app.
